Lets Make a Quiche

Tender to eat, plenty of protein, cheesy, delicious, and since you are making an entire pie, one quiche lasts for several breakfasts, lunches, and dinners.

Omg... corn? Oh no, not evil corn. Yes, corn... cutting an ear of fresh corn into rounds gives everyone a taste and adds about 3 carbs to your meal. THREE CARBS! It's clean and fresh and flavorful and tastes so good with the pan juices. What a meal... try this one.

You can use mussels and shrimp as I have chosen for this version, or create your own favorite, using scallops, clams, crab, or even a whole fish filet or cubes of a firm fish such as swordfish or mahi.

If you have any doubt as to the unhealthiness of Chinese cuisine, look at the Nutrition Page of Pei Wei Asian Bistro. I wondered WHY I was so sleepy and sick after eating there and to my shock discovered that the Beef and Broccoli I chose had over 40 grams of sugar.

Ummm, soft and tender and delicious. High protein, very low carb Ricotta Fritters. Watched Jamie Olive make this recipe with a much greater flourish! Here's the basic version I eat for lunch at my desk.

Manicotti

Manicotti

Being Italian has always meant pasta, but since my surgery, I do not eat macaroni anymore. I grab a meatball or have sauce over ricotta with lots of parmesan cheese. Once in a while I do make a pan of Manicotti but I use very thin eggy crepes called crespelle instead of pasta. They are easy to make and really delicious.

Serve this tender, fall-off-the-bone meat with sauteed Swiss chard or zucchini. It is very easy but the flavors are really deep and flavorful. Steak in the style of the pizzamaker.
